June 12th, 2010… what a cold rainy day for a beautiful wedding. The rehearsal the day before was a down pour with tornado warnings during the dinner hours – which moved us from Reunion Park to their home, and then going into the wedding it had rained all morning. But – silver lining is the rain stopped just enough for the wedding and some great cloud covered portraits of the couple, wedding party and family. We all know photographers like a cloudy day – but this one was a bit cool for a June wedding for sure. The entire wedding party was so fantastic standing out in 45 degree weather for a half hour to catch some outdoor shots. The great part about a wedding at The Ranch Country Club in Westminster, Colorado – is it doesn’t matter what the weather – there is always a location for some great shots inside and out. Lori from Statice Floral did wonderful work with the flowers, with a pop of color to the overcast day. Over all, very impressed with how everything pulled together, Jenny the catering manager did wonderful at keeping on top of everything and everyone had so much fun… more images to come soon – because… the dance was amazing with a feature by the groom, bridesmaids & bride!

I photographed some of their newest additions to the menu this past week… and this place is a must visit if you are in the Denver area. I was impressed with the presentation, food quality, variety on the menu, and the drinks were fantastic. I’ve personally dined their 3 times now and have been impressed with the upscale yet laid back feeling… and loved the drinks too.
Some of the items that stand out on their menu are: Serrano Ham wrapped Mahi Mahi, Moroccan Chicken, Crab Cake Appetizer, 7-Hr. Pork Appetizer, Strawberry Fields Salad, Grilled Hearts of Romaine Salad, & their Club Sandwich.
